Trinity Square Heritage Fun Day
Trinity Square in Hull may have been mistaken for a medieval French town today.
The sun was shining and crowds gathered for the Heritage Fun Day, part of the Hull Civic Society Heritage Open weekend.
From face-painting, craft workshops and heritage pram displays, crowds started ascending on the square as the city centre was packed with hundreds attending this year's Freedom Festival.
Visitors had the opportunity to identify animals from their bones and discover types of pottery used by our ancestors thanks to the East Riding Archaeological Society.

Guests could also see how cloth is woven and spinning wheels used thanks to the York and District Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.
Liz Smedley from the guild said: "We have had so much interest from people of all ages, including children who want to know how to spin.
"It's been a thoroughly enjoyable day and the crowds have been amazing. It has been three times busier than last year and everyone is in such good spirits."
The day will certainly be one that seven-year-old Oliver Gilson will never forget as he had chance to become a town crier for a few moments, under the instruction of East Riding Town Crier Michael Wood. Oliver got the chance to pray for a Hull City win and to tell his family how much he loved them.
Mr Wood was thoroughly pleased with how the day had panned out. He said: "When the sun shines everything else works itself out and the crowds here today have been amazing. The square has been filled with families and the square has taken on a whole new complexion. It's been fantastic."
